Great potential but owner doesn't seem to care
view is amazing, with a nice private beach.
the room, a deluxe, came with 2 rock hard single beds. no option for a double. plenty of noise from chickens and karaoke. the pool was n't cleaned regularly either. the food was limited but was decent. There is a lot of potential to this place but he doesn't seem interested, not even replying to us saying hello. is too much a night for a. room.

This is an interesting place. It was practically empty when we stayed but we were unable to upgrade to a nicer room for reasons that were unclear. The hotel has lovely grounds right on a private beach and the pool is lovely. You can get a massage right by the pool, which is nice. The resort is kind of a ways out from town, but the staff will give you a ride in for a reasonable price. The standard rooms are really basic shacks and they really could do more with the place considering it's amazing view and nice pool and gardens. The staff is friendly but they always seemed surprised when we asked for anything (such as lunch!) The price is reasonable and I'd stay again.

disappointed, run - down chalets poorly maintained
Swimming pool (duck pond) not maintained . mattress (2 inch thick with plastic wrap) very uncomfortable. Noisy air con keeps u awake all night. Dog not well looked after, walking around with very strong stench. Private beach littered with dog poo.

Awful. We felt like we were unwelcome
none. unless you're Japanese maybe?
- No night staff around to ask questions/get help
- Breakfast poor, no options and left out in the heat for 45 minutes
- We were told it was exclusively for Japanese people, and we felt very unwelcome
- Didn’t inform us that generators were off the morning before we left, leaving us with no water or power
- Tried to over charge the cost of airport transfer
- Japanese owner was rude and didn’t say hello to us
- They asked for a deposit of 500 per day even though we’d already paid in full for staying there
- No fridge in the room as written on the website
- Bathroom toilet has a terrible leak

I don't have a gd stay! Sorry to say:(
I don't have a gd experience in this hotel! Not at all :(
What I can suggest this hotel is to till the patronage all thier rules especially your pick up fr ports. That you charge per person. Straight to the point I don't have a pleasant stay at all :(( Plus I was bitten wd a feral cat fr neighbourhood n they didn't know anything about it. I always visit Bohol twice a year but no Nova for me anymore :(

Not comfortable resort, all workers are not kind.
nice view, calm place, seaside location
When we are reached at the resort they are not prepared for room.
They didn't know about our reservation and just made an excuse.
They are not kind, and don't care about visitors.
In room, not clean and facilities are not good function.
All things are unconfortable.
It was terrible experience to us.

Quiet hammocks with a view
Stayed here five nights and really enjoyed having the place almost to ourselves. Lovely private beach, beautiful views of the bay, comfortable hammocks and seating area and clean rooms.
The food was okay with large portions, but all dishes priced P200 and above, with a fairly limited menu. Most things too salty or oily for us.
Staff were friendly and helpful.

Nice environment but poor service
Private beach, quiet environment and dinner menu
No service on arrival, the owner was there but did not give a smile or even said hello. Service is bad if you are not japanase clients or divers.
The hotel itself is very cool, nice pool (not really clean),private pristine beach, quiet environnement. Location is a bit outside of Alona, so better to get a motorbike to go out for dinners and arounds. It is a a dive resort for japanese costumers. kids are not really welcome and not recommanded for no-japanese costumers. Luckily, we were the only one in ther esort during 5 nights.
Location : 4-5kms from Alona - 1kms of dirt road

vétuste, déco inexistante, plage et piscine privée.L'hôtel est assez difficile à trouver au fond d'une impasse. La piscine et le batiment de la réception font très bonne impression. Mais la chambre...Après avoir traversé la propriété, nous arrivons au fond de celle ci, dans le parc des coqs du voisin. La chambre est petite, les draps sentent le moisi, le matelas très fin, donc le lit très dur, l'eau salée au robinet et douche, la chambre pas soignée, le buffet du soir très cher... dommage, la piscine et la belle plage privée ne peuvent pas tout compenser!
